Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Unfortunately, this is a normal instinctive issue between the dogs. There are a few tips that will help. One is to place aluminum foil where he urinates. The noise of this will cause him to be startled and stop. make sure to clean these areas with a good odor neutralizer such as Nature's Miracle to discourage this behavior. Since this behavior is due to stress, purchase a DAP Collar at the pet store that acts as a calming agent to decrease this stress. Since he does this at night, crate train your guy so he is not loose during the night.If this gets worse, I have had clients have luck with an ultrasonic collar. You will have to be present when this happens and use this device to startle him. I have also had good results using a coke can with pennies to shake and startle him and then say a string NO!!Here is a LINK with more tips:http://www.ehow.com/how_5584345_stop-male-dog-urinating-furniture.html
Keep working with your guy,,,now that the other dog is gone, these tips should help get him past this. Your vet will have medication for anxiety to help him past this if these tips do not help.
Does that make sense to you?
